Mystery in a year of Banker Suicides

And so it continues. I dropped the ball, 3 bankers have died since my last blog 3 weeks ago, all suicide, this is off the chart now. Some are dying and media, alternative also are getting bored. I caught this one however. That is over 20 deaths of many kind in a year in the banking industry, all CEO’s and top people. Hmm

A mere two weeks since former JPMorgan banker, Kenneth Bellando jumped to his death, Media reports that the former CEO of Dutch Bank ABN Amro (and his wife and daughter) were found dead at their home after a possible “family tragedy.” This expands the dismal list of senior financial services executive deaths to 12 in the last few months. The 57-year-old Jan Peter Schmittmann, was reportedly discovered by his other daughter when she arrived home that morning. Police declined to comment on the cirumstances of his (and his wife and daughter’s) death. This is not the first C-level ABN Amro banker to be found dead. In 2009, former CFO Huibert Boumeester was discovered with (assumed self-inflicted) shotgun wounds.

String of suspicious deaths:

1 – William Broeksmit,

58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, was found
dead in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in
central London, on January 26th.

2- Karl Slym, 51

year old Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, was found dead on the
fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok on January 27th.

3 – Gabriel Magee,

a 39-year-old JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of
the JP Morgan European headquarters in London on January 27th.

4 – Mike Dueker, 50-year-old chief economist of a US investment bank was found dead close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State.

5 – Richard Talley, the 57

year old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado,
was found dead earlier this month after apparently shooting himself with
a nail gun.

6 -Tim Dickenson,

a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, also died last
month, however the circumstances surrounding his death are still

7 – Ryan Henry Crane,

a 37 year old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a
few weeks ago.  No details have been released about his death aside from
this small obituary announcement at the Funeral

8 – Li Junjie, 33-year-old banker in Hong Kong jumped from the JP Morgan HQ in Hong Kong this week.


Were these bankers
killed for knowing too much?  Were they involved in something so 
unethical that they killed themselves out of shame?  These are the 
speculations that are rising in the wake of these apparent suicides.
